A little bit of paradise in Peoria, IL this weekend...Congrats Erica & Brandon Stewart!!

Erica and Brandon were married in Cancun, Mexico a couple weeks ago and returned to Peoria for their reception! It was cold day here in Peoria, with horrible winds and freezing temps, but inside, it was paradise. We had such a fun day....there was no stress of walking down the aisle, no crunched timeline for the day. The bridal party relaxed, got ready, took lots of pics, and truly enjoyed themselves the entire day.

I had some of my favorite vendors this weekend to pull off this beautiful reception.....Pam Cooley doing beautiful photography, Ingrid from White Lily Productions following the bride, groom, and bridal party around capturing everything on film. Heaven on Earth with 2 incredible table arrangements, and elegant orchid and feather bouquets. I Do Events did the silver organza overlays, chair covers, and draping, and Susan from Is That a Cake? with her beautiful cakes...and there were many!! Great tunes from Diamond Dan kept them dancing till midnight... And I cant forget about Abbey, she is a new vendor that I am just adoring...she is a personal stylist for the bride the day of the wedding..everything from doing hair and make-up, to getting the bride dressed and ready for the day. And let me say Abbey did an amazing job...Erica was was so fab and the makeup was timeless and stunning! What I love most, Abbey comes to the bride, so that is a huge perk for the bride and myself!! I will be posting Abbey's info on my site soon...and she is also one of the vendor's at Heaven on Earth's NEW Wedding Boutique.

The reception was held at The Holiday Inn City Center and they were fantastic, so on top of everything, the staff was professional and great to work with. Everything ran seamlessly and that is because of Lisa Howard's & Abbas's hard work...thanks so much you two! They are on the top of my list for Venue's - no doubt!

Erica....what a fun time we had planning and I am thrilled that we were able to create a beautiful day for you to celebrate with all of your friends and family!! I wish you and Brandon a beautiful future full of dreams come true! Thanks for letting all of us be a part of this beautiful day!
